Northern/ Eastern white cedar


Is there a difference between Northern and Eastern white cedar? We live in Aurora, Ontario. We want to establish a cedar privacy wall. The cedars would be planted by one of the deck sides. We need dense conical trees.
Thank you.


Thanks for contacting Toronto Master Gardeners. Thuja occidentalis  is also known as northern and eastern white cedar.  This species is an excellent choice for a privacy hedge.  Click here for tips about the care of a Thuja occidentalis hedge.

Good luck with your hedge.
